This song was derived from the title of another fragment called "Letter from my Lover" and became a completely different–and completely fun–songwriting adventure into traditional country, humor, and the relationship between an aspiring romantic and his accomplished lady.


Louise she sends me letters
Every one gets better
Than the one she sent the week before
Envelopes with cards in
Doodles in the margins
Pretty flowers fallin’ on my kitchen floor
She’s my love letter writer

All these years I kept ‘em all
Now I’m running out of wall
They’ll be going on the ceiling come July
I just sit there staring
With my Conway Twitty blaring
Waiting on the postman to come by
She’s my love letter writer

What’s this funny feelin’ in my bones
Cards and letters, talkin’ on the phone
What am I doin’ living on my own
Without her?

There’s somethin’ I gotta do
Where’d I put my elmer’s glue?
Tryin’ to make me up a collage for Louise

Fishin’ hooks and buttons
Some bottle caps and….nuthin’
For to make up something special for my squeeze
But I’m no love letter writer

Dang, I ain’t no artist
But I do know where my heart is
And I’ll keep on tryin’ till the end of time
Found some toothpicks and some string
Lookey here! My Granny’s ring…
Just the thing to prove her to be mine
She’s my one and only love letter writer

She’s my love letter writer
